(russell) and they are using there are smart phones and tablets. point and realize i forgot my password for this site >> gentlemen our consumer reporter joins us this morning. with a push to do away with pass codes. could this work? >> could it work and could it be safe. that's question. we forget a password especially on car is on your phone a lot of you i do, you probably say, who has time for this. you just forgot the whole thing. what if we could do away with
something you need unique to you and your body facial recognition, your voice maybe or what we already do a lot of us when you use your thumb print to unlock your iphone. fido alliance they are national organization and pushing to use bio metrics instead of passwords. they say more than half of shoppers 53 percent of us forget their passwords. then a third abandon their online shopping carts altogether. >> they also say consumers prefer bio metrics choice. so it's something that could be in our future, russell. i've got couple of questions ph. actually called a fido alliance? >> yes, there is. no it has nothing to do with puppies. >> making sure. because if it does that will though throw me off a lot. is that something i mean are we going to see this happening? >> well it actually already is in some cases. usaa is using it master card is trying it out visa actually just announced a week ago they wanted tone able consumers to use technologies instead passwords
question is will we the consumers adopt it and trust it. >> is it working? >> it is working. of course every bio metric has a weakness. voice recognition, that doesn't work really well if there's a ton of background noise. then facial recognition, that can depend on lighting. so you might need a password to fall back on. which security experts say weakens the whole thing. these are for example working to prompt for the next bio metric test if one fails for example if stamped that will fail to open your phone that will prompt voice facial recognition. and then i got next thing is it st secure? >> well anything hackable i say if anything is secure because where there's a will there way. researcher actually successfully made digital copies of fingerprints russell. they usual special ink that mimics properties and managed to unlock phones. there's your answer. you can hack anything even bio
than passwords. bio metric signature id they are one of the companies developing this type of technology. and they actually have you use your finger to write a password. so sort of a combination of both. not only are you putting in a word. but your fingerprint the heat of your body, your specific touch. so that's a good example of how using multiple security measures is always the best defense. you need a bunch of things to make sure you're secure. i was watching that. that's fascinating. >> i think that, i mean in our future, i think we're going to see a combination. especially when it comes to companies, right? it might be something that we don't adopt paying our credit card bill or shopping online p but it's nice to think about when we're trying to do all of our holiday shopping right now. >> true. good point. good point. i want to work for the fido alliance. >> i feel like you need to invent your own version of fido alliance. what do do you do i work for fido alliance. >> really have to do like
